Another week, another new MSI notebook! The company just keeps onchurning them out from every possible type of user, and the P600 hasone particular group in mind: business users. the 15.6" P600 is theoutfit's latest machine, but rather than being designed for hardcoregaming, it's designed to just get through the work day.

It's loaded with Windows 7 Home Premium, an Intel Core i5 processor,Intel's GMA HD graphics, up to 4GB of DDR3 memory, a 2.5" HDD(250/320/500GB SATA), a 2-in-1 multi-card reader (SD/SDHC/MMC), HDMIout, a VGA output, two USB 2.0 ports, an eSATA port,mic-in/headphone-out, Ethernet, an 8-cell battery, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.1and a 1.3MP webcam. There's also a pair of speakers, a Kensington lockport, fingerprint reader and a good bit of pre-installed software.

For anyone who doesn't care much about HD multimedia or gaming, thisseems like a perfect fit. It'll surely cost less than most other Corei5 notebooks due to the integrated (as opposed to discrete) graphics,and it'll still be rather quick when it comes to handling typical,everyday tasks. Shame MSI won't tell us an estimate price or releasedate, but we're hoping to see those soon.



Cutting edge computer for mobile commerce
Less is more: Built by MSI's highly awarded design team, the P600 is characterized by its flowing feather pattern lines and lustrous rhombic color film print which accentuate its light, minimalist grace. Equipped with a DVD drive and 8-cell large capacity batteries, the 15.6" P600 only weighs 2.4kg—the perfect blend of lightness, beauty, and performance.

Unique new Chiclet keyboard: The P600 comes with MSI's own Chiclet keyboard the independent key which gives it an unpretentious style all its own. Typing is more comfortable and quieter and the design helps keep you from hitting the wrong keys as you type more naturally in any program.

Multipoint touchpad and Touchpad Locker: The P600 also comes with a multipoint touchpad, so you no longer need a mouse when viewing webpages and pictures. Simply use two fingers to zoom in/out and rotate photos or scroll webpages. The upper edge of the touchpad is equipped with a unique Touchpad Locker to lock the touchpad when needed to prevent problems stemming from accidentally touching the touchpad.

Dual biometric verification for tight security
Fingerprint reader: To ensure data security, the P600 comes with a fingerprint reader located between the two touchpad buttons, so you can use biometric recognition to protect your computer. Your data is protected by a fingerprint reader that recognizes individual fingerprints, so you no longer have to memorize user accounts and passwords to access data. With a light sweep of your finger, the biometric system lets you, and only you, in.

EasyFace software: In addition to protecting your data with a fingerprint reader, the P600 is equipped with MSI's exclusive EasyFace program to further protect your notebook. The EasyFace Manager uses the P600's HD webcam to take and store several sets of photos of the user which are utilized by the easy-to-use EasyFace Autolocker and EasyFace Logon when accessing your computer.

Exceptional performance, eight hours of battery power*
Intel® Core™ processor: The MSI P600 comes with Intel's powerful, energy-sipping Core i5 processor with Intel Turbo Boost and Intel® Hyper-Threading technology for dynamic enhanced processing efficiency to handle more data and greatly enhance overall system performance.

Exclusive ECO Engine Power Saving Technology: Despite its high performance processor and DVD Super-Multi drive, the 15.6" P600 boasts a long-lasting battery life. MSI's exclusive ECO Engine Power Saving Technology gives the P600 up to eight hours of battery power. ECO Engine Power Saving Technology allows you to select at the touch of a finger from among five power management levels—Video Game, Film, Presentation, Word Processing, and Turbo Battery, to automatically adjust screen brightness and processor performance as well as turn your computer on/off and put it into sleep mode, depending on the application currently being used to maximize battery life.

Business notebook?...Yeah Ok!

This does not look to impressive, really what exactly is Business about this. Only that it is not a gaming computer? There no real possibility for DCC so architects and professionals would not find this useful. In most standard businesses, when you need something like the you standard off the shelf Best Buy notebook will do. And that is what this seems to be.

I feel most businesses that would use something like this would have the same results with most gaming computers, and could find one at a far more reasonable price?

Intel Core i7-875K Quad
Asetek 510LC 120MM
4GB Kingston Hyper-X DDR-3
ASUS P7P55D-E Pro
CyberPower 800 PSU
Kingston 64GB SSD 
2 Hitachi 1-TB HDD'S
FirePro V8800
8X Blu-Ray DVD±R/±RW
HPw2207 22" LCD
Cintiq 21UX
CoolerMaster 690II Advance
Win 7 Pro 64 bit

How would you find a gaming laptop at a far more reasonable price if gaming laptops use a dedicated graphics chip instead of onboard video? Usually it shouldn't be that way.

What MSI has told us so far in this news story, the features that make this particular laptop geared towards the business users are the security features. Not only is there a finger print reader, but there is also a face recognition feature. I think these are great selling points to business users.

 

If you think you can’t do something, you’ll never be able to do it. No matter how easy it is.
